Selecting School Reform Models: A Reference Guide for States.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
This guide is designed to help state leaders identify which comprehensive school-reform models have been adopted throughout the United States. It provides information on states being targeted by developers and the capacity of each design team. The guide is divided into 4 sections: Developers in States; Developers' Capacity; List of Developers; and Comprehensive School Reform Demonstration (CSRD) Program Resources and Publications. The section on Developers in States features an alphabetical listing of each state and lists current developers in each state, the names of developers expanding in 1998-99, and the names of developers projecting expansion or expanding in 1999-2000. The section on developers' capacity lists the developer name, the current number of schools in which the developer is, the additional schools targeted for 1998-2000, and whether the developer will work with individual schools and with clusters of schools. The guidebook profiles 26 models in all. Since the CSRD program provides $150 million for the scale up of schoolwide reform nationwide, it is hoped that this approach will address each school's curriculum and instructional needs; provide enriched professional development for teachers; strengthen parental involvement; improve school management; and help with school operations.
